Or le Yom Bet, 15th Adar, 5770, Shushan Purim

Breslev Israel

The captain of a U.S. battleship is standing on the bridge. When he sees a light out on the water, he asks the lookout if they are on a collision course. The look out says, “Aye, aye, sir.” The captain calls the signalman. “Signal that ship to change course by twenty degrees.” The answer comes back: “I advise you to change your course by twenty degrees.” The captain is upset signals them: “I am a U.S. Navy Captain; change your course by twenty degrees.” The answer comes back: “I am an ensign U.S. Navy. I strongly urge you to change course by twenty degrees.” The captain is furious. Signal that ship: “We are a battleship and they better change course by twenty degrees.” The answer comes back: “I am a lighthouse. You better change your course by twenty degrees.”

Joke of the day

 
14th Adar, 5770

Breslev Israel

Little Moishe has $100 and he is quite worried that he may lose it. He asks his friend, Yankel. “Yankel, Yankel, what shall I do? I’m worried that I might lose this $100!” Yankel replies: “Don’t worry. Put it into a Hungarian bank.” Moishe continues: “Yes, yes, but what will happen to the $100 if the bank goes bankrupt?” Yankel replies: “Don’t worry. The bank is insured by the Hungarian National Bank.” Moishe replies: “But what will happen to the $100 if the Hungarian National Bank goes bankrupt?” Yankel replies: “That shouldn’t worry you either. It is insured by the Russian government and the Russian National Bank.” Moishe is still impatient. “But what will happen if the Russian government and the bank go bankrupt?” Yankel replies: “So what? Isn’t that worth $100?”

Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book.

Joke of the day

 
12th Adar, 5770

Breslev Israel

This fellow walks over to the bartender and says, “I hear you are a betting man.” The bartender answers, “Sometimes I indulge.” “OK, I’ll bet you $10 that I can bite my eye.” The bartender thinks, “This is a good bet, OK!” The man takes out a glass eye, puts it in his mouth and bites it! The bartender doesn’t like it! He’s fuming, but pays up his $10. The man says, “Don’t aggravate yourself. I’ll bet you double or nothing I can bite my second eye.” The bartender figures, “OK, he can’t have two glass eyes. You’re on!” The man takes out his false teeth and bites the other eye… The bartender is really furious. But a bet is a bet — he plunks down his $20. The man says, “Come on, don’t be angry. I’ll give you another chance to win it all back. Double or nothing. You see this shot glass? I’ll put it at the end of the bar. I’ll shake up this bottle of coke and I’ll throw the contents from here into the shot glass without spilling a drop on the bar or mirror or anywhere.” The bartender says, “OK. Let’s go.” The man spends two minutes shaking up the bottle of coke. He opens it up. It sprays the bartender, all over the bar, on the glasses, the mirror, the whole place and not a drop in the shot glass. The man says, “Boy, that was terrible!” takes out a $100 bill and pays the bartender. The bartender is smiling from ear to ear, laughing his head off. The man turns around and walks away. The bartender calls after him. “Boy,” he says, “you’re not dumb. How come you did such a dumb thing?” The man points to a group of customers in the back. He says, “I bet them $5,000 that I could spray you and your whole bar with coke and you wouldn’t get angry, and if you are laughing I get $10,000.”

A call for help!

Shalom,

       I established Yeshivat Or Tsafon – Derech Chachma four years ago. The Yeshiva has served tens of students, over thrity at this point, the vast majority of whom were housed fed and taught while paying no tuition. I personally did not take any income from the Yeshiva for the whole of the first year, and never have taken my full pay.

       The Yeshiva has has two full sedarim a day, along with a host of evening classes, and is open to the public. Besides teaching many chapters of various Folio’s of Talmud, I have made a special effort to teach Tanach. In the last two years alone, I have taught the first 24 chapters of Genesis, using all of the major commentaries found in the Mikrot Gedolot, plus R. Hirsch and Midrash. I have also taught classes following the weekly Torah readings. I also taught Megillat Esther and most of Proverbs. I also gave classes in the opening chapters of Job. I also had classes in Halacha, including Rambams Yad, and Mishna Berura. I have taught a diverse host of other subjects, including Pardes Rimonim, Rambams Guide for the Perplexed, and Sefer Yetsira, Zohar, Duties of the Heart and classes to young men about to be married.

       All of that teaching, sometimes as much as six hours a day, plus advising and counseling students and attempting to be the Yeshivas administrator have not allowed me the time to either work on building up the Yeshivas network of monetary support, or, obviously for the collecting of funds to keep the Yeshiva going. This brings us to the reason you are reading this letter. I need help! I am requesting from all those who get this letter, to please consider giving me al least a little help to keep my efforts from being for naught. A donation of at least ten dollars ($10), while not seeming like much, could be the life saving amount that will allow me to keep the doors open and providing for those wishing to begin their journey in Torah learning.

       You can send any donations to:

Yeshivat Or Tsfon – Derech Chachama
c/o Saruk Eshel
P.O.B. 1278
Tsfat Israel
13440

If you wish a receipt, just add a note.

       Thank you for your consideration, and may G-d bless you.

Saruk Eshel

ACT NOW — Help Torah.org Without spending a Dime!

A message from

Someone else will donate the half-shekel (up to $5000)… if you act right now!

When the Temple was standing in Jerusalem, there was an annual Mitzvah to give a half-shekel coin, in order to support the Temple work over the coming year. While people were free to give larger amounts in other ways, in this particular donation everyone was identical. The emphasis was upon joining with all the other members of the Congregation of Israel, rather than upon acknowledging G-d’s unique gift of financial wealth to an individual.

On the Eve of Purim, the custom still exists to give a donation to charity in memory of the half-shekel.

Today, we have our own unique opportunity – for a one dollar donation to be given to Project Genesis on your behalf. But you must act immediately to take advantage!

There is an online service called iGive. The basic concept is “shop for charity.” From their website, you can access eBay, buy.com , Marriot and Sheraton hotels, and literally hundreds of other stores. You pay the same price as you always would, and they give us a very modest donation.

But if you sign up and visit a store before 1 PM EST on Thursday, they will give Project Genesis 1 dollar, just because you did. Please remember BOTH steps – sign up for iGive , AND visit a store using your brand-new membership. [Fine print… you should also visit the site a couple times a month, and use it to buy something eventually.]

It seems tiny – but then again, so does a half-shekel. Yet the combination of all those half-shekel donations supported the daily sacrifices in the Temple for the entire year. So please act now !

Of course, we have also recently read the Torah portion of Terumah, which encouraged everyone to give in accordance with the generous spirit in their hearts. And needless to say, we invite you to do so as well, through our secure online donation system or by sending your check to:

Project Genesis – Torah.org
122 Slade Ave.
Suite 250
Baltimore MD, 21208

Thank you for your generous support!

Sincerely,

Rabbi Yaakov Menken
Director, Project Genesis – Torah.org

Breslev Israel
Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost.

Breslev Israel

A man is complaining to his friend about his misfortunes. First his home burnt down. The friend says: “could be worse.” His car was stolen – “could be worse!” He broke his leg – “could be worse.” The I.R.S. is investigating him – “could be worse.” After 20 catastrophes, the answer is always: “it could be worse.” He exclaims, “How in the world could it be worse?” The friend answers: “It could have happened to me!”
